We can accommodate any event or budget, from business occasions to casual family affairs.View Private Dining Details
Fun time with the kids. The food came out relatively quickly for the amount of customers in the restaurant. The restaurant was bustling at this hour (Sunday around 615pm) and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We will be back.
Our server Preston was outstanding. Food was delcicious as always. Keep the vinegar and oil for bread. We'd hate to see that phase out.
Like always this restaurant never disappoints. Great place to share dinner with friends. They have family style dishes for everyone to share. We ordered 4 small dishes and it was plenty of food for 6. They also have a kids menu for the kids that want own meal. Love this place.
Great experience, highly recommended! Very delicious food and drinks!
The food was fine - as would be expected the service (Sabrina) was friendly, attentive and unrushed, but it was very, very noisy. Very happy to have had open table reservations because the wait was over 2 hours when we showed up for our reservation time.
Never go here without a reservation and plan on waiting 30-40 mins past your time if you do. 2-2 1/2 hour wait last night without a res with a tiny place to wait.
Run down establishment with dirty carpet. Food and service are good, but worn out decor and high prices are a turn off.
Everything was perfect for Valentine’s Day. The waiter was extremely nice, there was a professional photographer, and the food was amazing. They made a lasagna in the shape of a heart, which was fun
Really good food, fast service servers had great attitudes.
The food is good and big portions. Great for dates!!!
Food is horrible
We've dined here a few times already with our boys. It's nice that it's kid friendly. Boys love the food and portion sizes. The bill can getup there, so I recommend buying their gift cards at Costco.
Unusually long wait to be seated, the restaurant was half empty the floors were over due for sweeping. Perhaps the crew was too busy to take care of it. No plans to go back to this location.
The service was bad from the minute we were seated. Took 20 minutes for server to a knowledge us. We ordered cocktails . After 15 minutes I walked to the bar were our drink order was waiting , grabbed a tray and delivered them to our table myself. We had 2 very young children with us and it took almost 2 hours to complete dinner. Won’t be coming back here again.
It was great and our server amazing!
Went to celebrate a birthday, had reservations and was seated promptly, very friendly server for our large table. Great food and drinks. They sang happy birthday and took group pictures which we purchased.
Very good calamari, seafood pasta, ziti, salad and cheesy bread. A bit expensive but massive amount of food. Service was excellent. Noise level was better than usual (maybe because it was Monday and not as crowded). We always make reservations so we never have to wait for more than 5 minutes.
where can I start? Kept waiting 15 min after reservation time with plenty of tables. See photo.
Many unbussed tables with disgusting leftover food left on them. The entire time of our visit.
food, cups and silverware on the floor.
Sat 10 min before anyone came for a drink order.
Birthday celebration identified in the reservation and server was told - they totally forgot about it. Were reminded - then they got the ice cream flavor wrong.
Bathrooms were atrocious. 'Stuff' floating in the urinals. Wife mentioned the women's restroom was not much better. There was stuff on the floor everywhere.
They served food - but did not bring us silverware to eat it with.
I've never thought Buca was a very good value, but its dirty and has poor service as well.
If you look closely at the photo you will see totally empty tables - with food on them - there is nothing pretty about a melted down huge ice cream Sunday 60 min after serving it. you will also see a lot of empty tables when they were telling people they had a 90 min wait. Plate and silverware on the floor.
Always have, always will enjoy visits to Nice, but lately the service has been poor...inattentive wait staff tarnished our lunch...the food however always saves the day...don't think I will be returning to this Buca again though, Pasadena it is from now on...Sorry Claremont.
I love this place!!! The food is amazing and the value is as amazing as the food!!!
Service and food excellent
Food was great, never disappointed. Will return for sure.
Its a great restaurant. Family friendly, great food & service. Every thanksgiving, is my place to eat witj family.
Awesome service and meal! A family favorite
our service waiter was excellent.food came to us on a timely manner.food menu on the pricey side,but good!!.
Great food, ambiance and overall experience. Will definitely be back!
It was a good experience for my family and I, the food was delicious and the service was good. We had a rather large group and the staff was attentive to our needs.
Buca never disappoints! We come here often and always leave way too full, we just don’t have control over enjoying all of the great tasting foods! Go enjoy and relax:)
Our waitress Ceci was great, however, a server was absolutely rude. Ceci suggested the chicken be cut in half for our large party. When it came out, it wasn’t cut. I asked him to cut it and he became upset. He was patronizing, arrogant, and ruined our special occasion. I reminded him the customer is always right. After all it was how I ordered it and he said it’s in company policy that the customer is not always right. We expressed our disgust with Ceci and she brought the manager over. Apparently the restaurant has received multiple complaints about him.
Great food and family atmosphere
The manager was extremely personable and nice along with the employees.
Buca is not a very good value any longer.
For Italian food I'd recommend you go down the road to Spaggi in Upland. Better quality food for the same price.
I had the ravioli in meat sauce. The sauce tasted like someone opened a can of stewed tomatoes into some half cooked hamburger and cooked it the rest of the way. No actual onion. No traces of pieces of garlic. No fresh basil or oregano.
I guess I got meat 'sauce.'
The place prob has not changed. But my perception of value has.
Made a reservation for 7:15pm. Upon arrival the hostess Emily tell us the kitchen is running behind. 45 min later now almost 8pm we finally get a table. Reservation, why bother seems like staff and management need to do a better job of setting expectations and gauging demand.
our experience was not the best. We never received bread. Asked twice. Still never received any. Than placed an order for parm. Garlic bread with our meal never received that either. Reminded our server three times still never came. Was my daughter's birthday asked for a piece or tiramisu for her when placing my reservation-never received that either. We won't be coming back to this restaurant. Definitely didn't get why we paid for. Very disappointed.
Great food! We went early (4:00 pm) and avoided the crowds. Best pizza in town, terrific salad and the brushetta was very good!
Went here to celebrate birthday, thought it would be fun. Service was slow, food came out overdone or cold. They did replace the over cooked calamari. But overall a very disappointing experience.
We ordered cheese breads and never received it when my husband asked the server he said he would go check and then never did. We asked a second time and then he said someone must have taken it by mistake at that point we were done with dinner and asked him to remove it from the bill-which he did. Our server was not around much. We were celebrating a birthday and he must have forgot because nobody sang etc.
The food was ok- however the chicken Marsala was dry and the spaghetti was not very hot.
We usually have great experiences here so this was surprising.
